Membership

 

Join a lively international community, committed to conservation

Membership is an opportunity to broaden your horizons, share with colleagues from across the world, develop your professional career, and be part of an ongoing conversation, in person and online.

IIC membership is open to those with an interest in conserving the world's heritage: from conservators and restorers, to conservation scientists, architects, educators and students. We also welcome collection managers, curators, art historians and other cultural heritage professionals.

Our plans for 2018 – 19 make it a particularly good year to join, with major events at Turin and Beijing, as well as a refreshed website, lively social media and publications. You can read about the full benefits of membership here.
